In mountainous regions the water supply is often at a higher altitude, which gives it great pressure at zero extra cost, but the users at the lower end are expected to regulate it to their needs.

Something I didn't think of. Thanks, Gary.

That is the issue here in Palisade CO. Our water pressure is about 165 psi. The town is small (2600 people) and at this time does not have a city water regulator so we have to furnish our own.

My area too. I am zoned "light agriculture" and thus the water pressure at the meter is 130 pounds.  It's up to us to provide the regulator.
